My book haul from last week—pretty sweet, right? Thank God for library book sales!! ❤️❤️📚

Avanders Whoa. And look at those shelves! 2mo
wanderinglynn Those shelves look amazing! 😍😍😍 2mo
CindyMyLifeIsLit Thanks, @Avanders and @wanderinglynn ! My shelves are quite full, but I keep acquiring new books—the dilemma most of us face! 2mo
Avanders Lol definitely! I‘m trying not to get too excited .. in anticipation for a not-too-distant future move, I packed up 6 boxes of books to put in storage.. all of a sudden my internal self wants to keep buying books to fill the recently vacated space! 😆😆 2mo

Inside the tote bag is my #bookhaul from the local library sale I attended last night. I joined the Friends of the Library so that I could go during the preview event. Today and tomorrow the book sale is open to the public. (1/2)

Suet624 I would LOVE to. If you think of it, give me a heads up. 3mo
ChasingOm I did my YTT last year; this year I‘m doing an online Anatomy intensive. I‘m not teaching yet, but it‘s been an amazing way to deepen my practice. ❤️ 3mo
mcctrish That‘s fantastic 3mo
NHLibrarian @Suet624 Will do! 3mo
NHLibrarian @ChasingOm Are you familiar with Katy Bowman? I just took a weekend Move Your DNA class and I‘m taking another in June. Before I take YTT, I‘m trying to figure out which flavor of yoga most compliments her ideas of movement. 3mo

#bookhaul!!!! 22 books (plus two for my kiddos, not pictured)... for $6!! And I am super pleased with the quality of my finds! I just love library book sales. Filled in quite a few books for my challenges. Only ones that I‘ve already read are Eleanor Oliphant and Britt-Marie.. but I felt they are worth owning (would like a complete Backman collection).

Suet624 What a fantastic collection of books! Hours of enjoyment in your future. 💕 4mo

Just came back from my favorite annual used book sale! I got these nine for $15. Who of you has read any of these? Which should I read first? (not that I don‘t already have a TBR stack 100+ books high!)

AmyG I just loved A Map of the World. Great haul! 9mo
Lcsmcat I‘ve read Killers of the Flower Moon, and several others in your stack are on my TBR. Great haul! 9mo
Nute Several of the books are very good, but Carlos Ruiz Zafon gets my vote. However, that is book two. Have you read Shadow of the Wind? 7mo

Yesterday's #library #booksale haul before I had to drive down to PA for a wedding. Some of it is for me, but a majority of it is for gifts and swaps. I love getting these so cheaply so I can give even more in swaps. All rhis for $11.25; and that's only because the movies were $1/each.

Library book sale. Stowe, Vermont. July 10th through the 29th. I have found the best books at this book sale. There‘s a lovely Airbnb downstairs with 4 bedrooms. I just know you all want to explore and shop. 💕💕 (This is not an intentional plug for the Airbnb, by the way. Just an option ... and how fun would it be to visit! 😀)

Libby1 Oh! How lovely! I wish I could come, Vermont Friend! 13mo
Suet624 @Libby1 I‘ve probably mentioned this already, but Vermont and Northern Ireland are quite similar. There‘s a bit more magic in the air where you are though. (edited) 13mo

Library sale was a bit of a bummer today. That little stack of the four blue books is all that‘s for me, and I‘ve already read all of them except All The Missing Girls. My husband loves buying used DVDs, so you can see his stack is much larger. I always hit up the kids section first but the Kids chapter book selection was teeny this year!

JosieG I often have trouble finding books for my kiddos at the library sales. Partly because they read very much on a whim and I can never predict what they'll be into from day to day, but also because the chapter book selection is so hit-and-miss. I usually end up with at least a couple books about dogs for my son, though. He's got tons now. 😁 14mo
MelissaSue81 This is the worst luck I‘ve had, I think. The selection was seriously tiny. Maybe 30-40 books total. 14mo
